Hey everyone :)

Well I've decided to give up smoking because I had a really bad cough the last couple of days and literally couldn't smoke! So am thinking it would be silly to start smoking again now :) Have tried giving up a couple of times before but hopefully this will be it!! can't stop thinking about how nice it would be to have a ciggy though while i'm watching the tv...:eek:

hey fee,

nice one for finding this site. you will quit smoking if you spend long enough around this 'ere lot, its all they seem to talk about! :p

all i can say is that sitting infront of that same TV in 6 months time being smoke free is going to be so much sweeter when you are quit. im nearly 4 months in now and just feel amazing, look amazing, am making everyone feel great about themselves as ive got so much self confidence and health back, you just couldnt by this kinda happiness.

if you really wanna do it you found the right place. Everyone here will see you through.

welcome aboard,

Sitting is the tricky part for me. As soon as i sit it gets super difficult. Try doing something aswell as sitting watching TV... like knitting. Now, i cant knit... but i'd give it a go if it keeps my mind occupied. Just dont do what i did last night, which was drink alot of wine and eat my body weight in chocolate. That makes u feel ever so slightly icky. I did go for a brisk walk in the freezing cold at about 11.45 though... just because i could. :p


well done good choice.... keep at it.first week is worse... it does get better... this site will help you too.... so many great and supportive poeple on here :)
